India is a blend of myriad religious and cultures. To imbibe in our children the values and ethos of every culture and community, our KRISHNAMAL RAMASUBBAIYER SCHOOL – CBSE , celebrated Onam on August 21, 2021 through virtual mode with much enthusiasm with all the students and in our school premises with teachers.
The celebration started with setting up of an attractive floral decoration in the reception area that was reminiscent of the agrarian past of Kerala.
Onam festivities included various activities such as athapookolam, face painting (Kathakali), making of greeting card, mask, snakeboat (vallamkali), wall hanging.
The main attraction of the session were athapookolam and face painting. The students were dressed in Onam traditional attire and added to the festivity.
